firefighters in cedar rapids are trying to figure out what caused a mobile home fire. one person is dead and another was taken to the hospital. the fire was at 3701 16th avenue sw. 72 year old ronald jacobs died at the scene. responders took his wife, 72 year old karen jacobs, to mercy medical center before transferring her to another hospital. smoke and flames had filled the mobile home when firereghters arrived just after 7:30 a-m yesterday morning. but the fire never got large enough to threaten any nearby mobile homes. one long time resident at the mobile home park says the jacobs couple had lived there for
issues, which may have slowed them down if they were trying to escape. " he was on oxygen, and he liked to cook in the mornings, cook breakfast and stuff like that... but i don't know what happened or whatever." one battalion chief said he does not know if the oxygen tanks they found inside the mobile home played any role in the fire. in a tv-9 follow-up this morning.. authorities are investigating a house fire in north english where firefighters found a man's body. firefighters arrived at 208 south h hhland street around 8:30 sunday night. but they didn't find the body of 25 year old austin watson until the fire was out. the state medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy. investigators believe a fatal fire in waterloo last friday night was not suspicious. firefighters pulled 53 year old ray anthony reed from his burning apartment at 16-84 mount carmel drive. he later died in the hospital. president obama will be picking a new justice for the supreme court after antonin
and a federal appeals court judge and former u.s. attorney in cedar rapids could be up for consideration. justice scalia's death set off a debate about whether president obama should nominate someone to fill the seat during an election year. republican senate leaders s y the next president should nominate someone when he or she comes into office in january. president obama says he does plan to nominate a replacement. the senate then must approve that nominee. and that's why judge jane kelly is on a short list of nominees. kelly was an assistant u-s attorney in cedar rapids until president obama appointed her to the 8th u-s circuit court of appeals. the senene unanimously confirmed her nomination in 2013. iowa senator chuck grassley accelerated her nomination. grassley is now the chairman of the senate judiciary committee. grassley released this statement saturday. quote: "given the huge divide in the country, and the fact that this president, above all others, has made no bones about his goal to use the courts to circumvent congress and push
agenda,a,t only makes sense that we defer to the american people who will elect a new president to select the next supreme court justice." if republicans don't get their way, university of iowa political scientist tim hagle thinks republicans will stonewall any nominees until a new president is elected. " i think that their better move will be to delay. if you give hearings to somebody and that person comes across as knowledgeable and calm it becomes harder to vote no." judge kelly y s confirmed in 83 days to her circuit seat. on average, research shows, it takes more than 270 days for that kind of coirmation. ' city council members in waverly will wait until next monday to discuss options for a historic bridge. several people gave their opinions during the city council meeting last night. the city will decide between 14 options for the nearly 100-year-old bridge after it closed

"everybody is talking about these issues, and it's fantastic so it's not just us in the legal community that realize sometimes innocent people get sentenced and convicted of things they didn't do, but now everybody knows. " iowa has never had a d-n-a exoneration,
